COVID-19 

Below is a summary of changes to City operations (Updated 5/13/2021):

Wayzata has taken the COVID-19 pandemic extremely seriously and continues to proactively work to minimize public health risk. Wayzata’s Emergency Management Team will continue to meet and plan as needed to protect our community.

Facilities

All City facilities are open to the public. Starting May 28th social distancing will be encouraged, but not enforced. Starting July 1st (or with 70% of the state vaccinated), masks will no longer be mandated at City facilities, the option to wear one will be left up to the individual.


Services

In response to COVID-19, some City services have changed. For information on how you can continue to access City services and staff remotely visit Virtual City Hall.  

The following services will be returning by July 1: 

  • Police Department - Civil fingerprinting

The following services will continue to be temporarily suspended or postponed:

  • Administration - Meeting space at any City facility for use by non-City of Wayzata groups.
  • Community Development Department – Rental inspections.
  • Police Department – ride-alongs, Police Department tours, car seat checks (call local hospitals for assistance).

Virtual Public Meetings

All public meetings will continue to be conducted virtually on the platform Zoom. All zoom meeting details can be found in the Event Calendar.

The City is looking into the potential of in-person meetings starting this summer, and hybrid meetings moving forward to serve the community long term.
